Let's Talk About Cordelia!
I'm going through my list and would really love to hear individual thoughts on the names I adore, but haven't quite made my short list.
What are your general thoughts on Cordelia?
How do you pronounce Cordelia?
What would you name siblings of Cordelia?
Previous Names: Madeleine, Louisa, Katarina.

As you can see from my signature, Cordelia is one of my favourite names. It's gorgeous, elegant, strong, rarely used and Shakespearean (though she isn't my favourite character). Anne of Green Gables fans will remember it fondly too. I pronounce it somewhere between cor-DEE-lee-ah and cor-DEEL-ee-ah. Personally I think Cordelia, Portia and Sebastian would be a gorgeous sibset. Kit Pearson wrote a YA novel (An Earthly Knight) with a sibset named Sebastian, Rosalind (Roz), Cordelia (Corrie), Harry, Juliet and Orlando (Orly). I still think that's one of the best sibsets I've ever heard.~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3
Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Portia, Victoria, Diana, Felicity, Juliet, Scarlett
Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy... don't love many boys' names!

I absolutely adore Cordelia. I too get an Anne of Green Gables vibe, which I love. I think it's underused and elegant, and easily recognisable.
I pronounce it Kor-DEE-lee-ah (four distinct syllables).
I have long pondered siblings to Cordelia. I've thought of:
Lysander (although this gives off a strong Shakespeare vibe; but I can't help loving it!)
Helena (with these last three girls names, there's again a Shakespearean element.. dammit, he had such great names!)I'm 19 with a furbaby named Frederick
* Beatrix * Clementine * Penelope * Seraphina *
* Theodore * Hugo * Caspian * Arthur * Lysander *
